  •  They Do Not Even Know Our History! (6+ / 0-)

    Egads!  They do no even know our history!

    The plaques were ordered removed by Governor George W. Bush. A Yankee.

    The plaques were on the Supreme Court Building.  One said it was built from funds borrowed from the Confederate Pension Fund.  The other was a quote by Robert E. Lee concerning Texas soldiers.

    The plaques were placed there in the late 1950's when the building was constructed.

    The pension fund was The Confederate Pension Fund and was used to pay pensions to Confederate soldiers and their widows and orphans.  It was discontinued decades ago.

    I am not sure these Republicans are hicks, hillbillies or kickers.  In this part of Texas we would call them pea brains.
